Happy Tuesday! It's Ameena. I'm three weeks into my new Juice role and I've been busy cooking up all types of things. But before I really get down to the nitty gritty, I need your help.

Send your #LoveMomTexts to me via email at email@example.com. Second, I want you to tell me what to do. What food, drink, person or event should I write about? Tell me about what's cool and important to you. Now, without further ado, here's what's happening around the city (and don't forget to tell a friend to subscribe here)...

I love a good chicken wing. So, when Zombie Burger announced that they would be adding wings to its menu, I had to make my way over there to try them. I tried the southside ranch, brown sugar and Carolina mustard BBQ. Overall, I would only recommend the brown sugar rub.
